Meditation: Breath


Hello, my name is Dina Nunziato, and I am the Clinical Director at the Anxiety Institute.

This 10-minute breath meditation is designed to center you in the present moment and promote the body’s relaxation response. You can use it throughout the day  to manage your anxiety, or as a calming exercise before bedtime.

About Our Mindfulness Meditations

Mindfulness meditation is a training practice that teaches you to slow down your thoughts, let go of negativity, and calm both your mind and body. Mindfulness meditation involves a breathing practice and an awareness of body and mind. By moving your thoughts into the present state of mind without judging in any way, you will relax, build acceptance and cope with uncomfortable emotions. This can decrease your anxiety.

Please enjoy these other mindfulness meditations we have created for you.
